Today Switch is pleased to be hosting the 2015 DAAP Industrial Design Students from University of Cincinnati. For the past few years, Switch has been taking part in the student’s final project by way of offering our lighting knowledge and expertise. The project is for the students to create their own unique lighting fixture. Here’s a few from the past year we loved:
Be sure to stop into the showroom tonight (Friday, April 24) between 6:00 and 9:00 PM to check out the student’s work as well as meet them and discuss their works!
This past week has been a calm one compared to the busy bustling of the Home & Garden Show going on the past two weeks. While we’re glad to have a bit of a break, we also miss seeing all of our friends and making new ones at the show! Take a look at some of our photos we took during the 2015 Home & Garden show:

Inspired by the feathers of a tropical bird, Plumage is sure to be a showstopper! It is available in various solid colors, or even a multicolored version, which is the one we chose to headline our booth! Take a look at part of the install process we’ve been working so hard on:

This was a casual evening with a few speakers, Italian soda, and horderves in which the students, a mix from University of Kentucky and Miami University, got to mingle with professionals and potential mentors.

Every year Switch is involved in a design project for a class in the DAAP program at UC. Last week Drew and Bertie had their first meeting with the class to view the beginnings of their lighting design project. They also spoke to the students a bit about the lighting available at Switch and about lighting in general. Take a look at some of the photos taken during the student’s presentations:
January 14th through the 18th was the annual Dallas Light Show in the Dallas Market Center. This year Drew and Bertie had the chance to attend. Take a look at some of their photos and the wonderful new lighting they’ve discovered for 2015!
Switch owner Drew Dearwester recently took at trip to Miami to attend the Art Basel show. A bit about Art Basel:
“Art Basel stages the world’s premier Modern and contemporary art shows, held annually in Basel, Miami Beach, and Hong Kong. Founded by gallerists in 1970, Art Basel has been a driving force in supporting the role that galleries play in the nurturing of artists, and the development and promotion of visual arts. “
